Innovative Quality Almond Huller and Processor
Packaged and marketed under the California Royale Brand®, almonds that are grown by the Monte Vista Farming Company and its independent growers are proudly sold in more than 20 countries worldwide. The success of the brand is a credit to the growers and the management of the company, and the vision of its founder, Mr. Crecelius, supported by a staff of talented individuals dedicated to the maintenance of the highest quality standards and work ethic and mentions that “Our business model is still sustaining us today. We have not deviated from our model, which is now embraced by not only our customers but also our growers.”
Our growers participate in the marketing of their crop while maintaining “title” or “crop ownership" until the sale is complete. This system provides the safety that growers lack when pooling their crops with other handlers. This system, now known as the Grower Select Marketing System provides growers with an added degree of safety and confidence for the value of their annual farming effort and is the original grower-controlled almond marketing system.
Traceability is more than a commitment — it’s the foundation of our food safety programs. Never using shortcuts, our growers, employees, and customers rely on our transparency, starting in the field, and continuing throughout packing and shipping to ensure we are able to trace products forward and back with pinpoint accuracy. We set our quality control specifications to meet our customer expectations, going above and beyond the U.S.D.A grades. We take sustainability in the plant seriously by repurposing hulls and rocks. We recycle plant materials such as plastic bin liners, plastic stockpile tarps, and unused packaging supplies are recycled. We eliminate paper waste by communicating quickly and efficiently with our growers and customers via email and use our custom-tracking dashboard to send returns and market updates.
